The main attraction on Juvenilia isn’t Liz Phair’s straight-faced cover of the new-wave masturbation anthem ”Turning Japanese”; it’s the release of six songs from the homemade tapes that helped land Phair a record deal.

But her droll delivery, unconventional guitar strummings, references to leaving home — and, yep, use of the F-word — shows she always knew exactly where she was heading. B
